Description from knitty.com:

This toe-up short-row sock worksheet uses gauge plus a basic series of measurements to provide a custom fit.

Don't limit yourself to stockinette! Instead, select a textured rib or stitch pattern for the top of the foot and the ankle.

Just make sure that your adjusted number of stitches works with your chosen pattern.
